I just did a fresh install of Linux Mint 12 and then used this script to set it up for digital art work:
Everything implemented by that script seems to be working fine. All I needed to do was install my two favorite animation tools, Pencil and Synfig. I first installed the Morevna packages for each. Pencil seems to be working fine but the Synfig install failed to start up. So I uninstalled that one and grabbed the latest offical release for my 64-bit system (synfigstudio_0.63.04_amd64.deb). That one is also failing to start up, so I started it from the command line and here’s what I have:
synfig studio – starting up application…
synfig(9663) [07:01:10 PM] info: Loading modules from /opt/synfig/etc/synfig_modules.cfg
GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: Object class gtkmm__CustomObject_N6studio15ValueBase_EntryE doesn’t implement property ‘editing-canceled’ from interface ‘GtkCellEditable’
GLib (gthread-posix.c): Unexpected error from C library during ‘Invalid argument’: pthread_cond_timedwait. Aborting.
Not sure if there’s something in the afore-mentioned script that did something Synfig doesn’t like, but any help would be appreciated. If I can get this licked without damaging any of the other art packages, I’ll have the best set-up I’ve ever had for doing art and animation!
